Publisher's Summary

Shelley is one of the most revered figures in the English poetical landscape.   

Born on the 4th August 1792 he has, over the years, become rightly regarded as a major Romantic poet. Yet during his own lifetime little of his work was published. Publishers feared his radical views and possible charges against themselves for blasphemy and sedition.  

On 8th July 1822, a month before his 30th birthday, during a sudden storm, his tragic early death by drowning robbed our culture of many fine expected masterpieces. But in his short spell on earth he weaved much magic.  

In this collection Shelley’s words are alive with intent, meaning and emotion. A true poet for all our ages.
